Pizza pan chore board-DIY

My six year old has asked me several times to make her a "chore chart".  I've tried, with just some paper on the computer, but we never seem to keep up with them.  I have seen the CUTE calendars that people have made using cookie sheets and have wanted to try and make one.  Then today, as I thought of merging the two ideas!  This is what I came up with!

I started with a pizza pan that I used to use for something other than pizza.

Then, I covered it with some scrapbook paper and added some chipboard letters and flowers.


Notice, I had some of the pan showing on the top and bottom, so I added some ric rac around the outside.  Then, I just glued strips of paper with things she needs to do each day onto magnets.  I added the two little frames with "to do's" and "done" so that she could move the chore from to do to done herself!  She helped out a little bit and thought that was fun.  You could do this on a cookie sheet too and put more than one child on it!  I just used all stuff I already had around the house, so I didn't have to put out any more money!



Now, I'm gonna put that kid to work.

That is such a clever idea!

I made a chore chart out of felt for my 4 year old that I posted about this past fall for the same reason (not wanting to print out a new chart every day/week) and it has worked great!

Love that you were able to create it with things you already had!
